Sandals Jamaica bestows 22 scholarship awards

Monday, August 21, 2006

Students from Jamaica will get help to cover their expenses for the upcoming school year, thanks to the Sandals Community Scholarship Fund. This year, the awards which total up to $700,000 will be distributed amongst 22 worthy students from the islands rural districts. Wayne Cummings, General manager of Sandals Negril and first vice-president of the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA), challenged the recipients to work hard at school and encouraged the group to consider lucrative professions within the industry such as engineering, food and beverage management and public relations. This years awardees include Chevelle Blackburn, of Black River High School and Amoya Roxborough from Mannings High School. The scholarship award, now in its 10th year, has assisted 114 students to date
Meanwhile the Alumina Partners of Jamaica (ALPART) also awarded some 32 young students with its own ALPART scholarships totaling 240,000. Students were awarded based on outstanding performances in academic and extracurricular activities and were selected from 17 All Age and Primary Schools in St Elizabeth, where Alpart operates. Host of the award ceremony, Darrel Harriman, Alparts general manager, said the recognition programme was 'world class' in terms of motivation and the high standards attached to the selection criteria..
President of the Alpart/Schools Safety and Education Council, Verna Bromfield, thanked ALPART for its partnership with schools in the Essex Valley.
